How did you do the conversion? I did my conversion using cvs2svn, it detects which files in CVS were committed at the same time (it does its best, since it's really impossible to get it right in all cases) and simulates all the file commits as an atomic commit in Subversion, therefore reducing the total number of revisions you will have in your converted repository.

Regarding your confusion over the repository version instead of file version, the Subversion way of doing it makes much more sense, in CVS you had to keep lots of tags to know which versions of which files went together, in Subversion with one revision number only you have an accurate snapshot of what all your files looked like at that time. It really makes much more sense, so just try and get used to it, you will not regret it.
